Alright folks for this Marvel Universe VC we shall have one for this lady in Hydra known as Viper A.K.A Madame Hydra! We will actually start this off with X Men Evolution in which Lisa Ann Beley voiced Madame Hydra for the sole episode she was in. This isn't the first time Lisa has ever tried to voice a role with a accent of European origin and this is a fairly good one too. While Lisa's voice for the role in general let alone in accent was fairly light but Lisa was able to get that to work with the role pretty well as her performance does do a pretty good job reflecting on how she is a super villainous mastermind. Sure its not one of Lisa's best works nor is it one of the best performances in that show but it is a pretty good example of both nevertheless.

In the Motion Comic "Spider Woman Agent of S.W.O.R.D", Madame Hydra was voiced by Nicolette "Spider Woman" Reed. I was feeling a little iffy about this performance but its a bit more due to the voice namely I understand that a European accent would be quite recommendable for a Madame Hydra voice and I understand that but a Scottish one? (It sure sounded rather Scottish to me at any rate.) To be fair I also understand the idea of trying to make sure that Nicolette's Madame Hydra voice doesn't sound too much like her Spider Woman voice but still the idea of giving her a Scottish accent did feel a little strange. However Nicolette's performance for the role is not bad though as she did give it a playfully wicked tone which does work here pretty well.

And last but not least is Vanessa Marshall whom voiced Madame Hydra when she had a somewhat brief cameo in one episode of Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes (at least so far). While Vanessa's work for the role is not bad by any means especially when viewed by its own merits but it is basically a lighter version of her Black Widow voice in tone and accent (which is a bit more apparent when her only scene was mainly with Black Widow). But still like I said before when viewed under its own merits Vanessa's brief performance for the role was not bad though as it still is a decent fit for the role. Overall none of them are all that perfect for the role but Lisa is probably the best one out of these 3 here.   

(Update: Audrey Wasilewski voices Madame Hydra in the Captain America Super Solider game while Tasia Valenza voices her in Marvel Heroes. While Audrey's voice is pretty as she gets the accent down rather well but her performance is not bad per say but its kind of generic and sounds more like an evil female soldier than anything else but Audrey's work is decent. Now Tasia on the other hand is pretty solid though as her attempt on the accent is pretty good and is another fine example of how Tasia can do a sultry voice well. Tasia's performance was also rather good as it does suit Viper's manipulative persona as well and is a good example of the voice work in the game. Overall I now like Lisa and Tasia the most here.)

Personally, I prefer Lisa Ann Beley over Vanessa Marshall as Madame Viper. Vanessa isn't bad or anything, but it's distracting how much her Madame Viper voice sounds a lot like her Black Widow voice.

Tasia Valenza is my second favorite. I honestly would have preferred if she had played Madame Viper in Avengers EMH over Vanessa.

Audrey Wasilewski and Nicollette Reed are definitely the weakest voices in this compare.

Lisa Ann Beley is my favourite voice for Madame Hydra/Viper, it's such a nice change of pace for Lisa to voice a villainess like Madame Hydra. Her accent is fantastic, her voice sounds very evil and sexy and has a nice commanding authority too.

Tasia Valenza is a close second, she has the voice down but her accent is a bit too feint and lacking at times.

Vanessa Marshall is overrated in the role, I mean she's not bad but I really found it distracting just how much she and her Black Widow sound like each other. That scene when they were talking to each other just felt off and weird to me because I knew it was the same person speaking but it's not a bad performance by any means.

Nicolette Reed sounds decent though the acting is a bit off at times.

Audrey Wasilewski has a nice voice but it feels generic as Madame Hydra, I think its because she was more like a lackey than a commander.

Definitely going with Lisa Ann Beley.

BONUS: I think Luci Christian doing a variation of her Medusa could fit Madame Hydra well. Jennifer Hale or Jaynse Jaud would be great in the role too.

Going with Vanessa Marshall. I like Lisa Ann Beley and Tasia Valenza, too. Audrey is OK, but I don't much like Nicolette.

Should have used a clip from the second season of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Vanessa has meatier material to work with.

Tasia is great, but Vanessa still outshines her.

All four of them are good as Viper, but I'm gonna give it To Vanessa Marshall. She was the best of them IMO.

Tasia Valenza was good, but I think Vanessa Marshall is better, so I'll stick with her.
